Research: Causes and Prevention
Question from Kaneohe, Hawaii, USA:
I am 24 years old and was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes three months ago. I am also enlisted in the US Navy and have been for four years. I have no family history of diabetes. Is it possible to have contracted this due to vaccines given to me while on active duty?
The questions of what triggers diabetes has been studied for many decades. There is no evidence that any vaccinations trigger diabetes, however.
